CEGEPs see increased enrolment in remedial courses

June 30, 2017

The number of CEGEP students enrolled in French remedial courses continues to increase, according to Journal de Montréal. The article states that the number of students enrolled in a French upgrade course at a CEGEP increased by 8% from 2014 to 2015, while the overall enrolment decreased by 0.3%. Judith Laurier, Director of Communications at the Fédération des cégeps, explains that the increase may be partly due to enrolment trends that have seen a significant increase in the number of students with special needs and learning disabilities enrolling, the number of adults returning to CEGEPs, and the growing importance of CEGEPs in mastering French.
